The gorgeous Villa Olmi Resort
, one of the region's most exclusive properties, is also one of Italy's best kept secrets. Newly-opened in 2006, the Renaissance Villa is situated on an enchanting six hectare estate just outside Florence. Surrounded by beautifully manicured Italian gardens and a lovely heated pool, the Villa embraces its historical setting. The careful restoration enhanced the original architectural details (like the 18th century frescoes that adorn each room) while equipping all guest rooms with the technology and comforts of a contemporary five star hotel: plasma screen TVs, DVD players, wireless Internet, marble bathrooms with jacuzzis. The hotel's furnishings--antiques, Murano glass chandeliers--are refined and elegant. This spring, enjoy some excellent packages at Villa Olmi
, like the Morning of Art package
, which includes three nights accommodation, bottle of Tuscan wine on arrival, three hours walking tour in the city with private guide, two tickets for the Accademia Museum, wine-tasting with cheese and cured hams in the private cave, and complimentary buffet breakfast. Starting from EUR 330 nightly.
